Simon Says......make a MASCULINE CARD!!!

Challenge #4 over at the Simon Says Challenge blog is to make something for a GUY - young or old!! I needed a little gift tin for a 5 year old boy so I decided to make one and use my Simon Says Stamp set called BUGS! Can you get MORE "boy" than BUGS???? LOL The tin was a Chamomile tea tin that I recovered with My Mind's Eye paper. It was a perfect size for the gift (a bug catcher/holder and magnifying glass) and the Bug set was the icing on the cake!! :-)

Here are pictures of the 3 bugs I used and the lid. I added googly eyes to all the bugs and stickles to make them sparkle!










Head on over to Simon Says Challenge to check out what the other DT have made for this challenge to inspire you!! AND, don't forget to participate!!! You never know when there will be prizes!!!! ;-)
Thanks for popping by! Have a great week!!!

What a fun gift set, especially with the addition of the googly eyes. It works for the boys, but my DD would be a big fan, too!
